Congress Wants to Ban 24 Million Guns

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- According to data collected by the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF), U.S. International Trade Commission (U.S. ITC) data, Firearms manufacturers, and the Annual Firearms Manufacturing and Exportation Report (AFMER), modern sporting rifles like the AR 15 and AK 47 styled rifles are flying off the shelves.

Since 2020 over 2,798,000 modern sporting rifles (MSRs) were produced or imported. Since 1990 the data indicates a significant increase year over year of MSR production and/or import into America, resulting in approximately 24,446,000 in circulation to date. Interestingly, 1994 showed us a significant rate of increase in production due to the 94 “assault weapons” ban. 2020 showed us another boost in production and sales due to the nationwide left-wing riots that resulted in the burning down of buildings, assaulting of police officers and billions of dollars in damage.

NSSF President and CEO Joe Bartozzi said, “The firearm industry responds to market demand and this shows that during the elevated period of firearm sales that began in 2020, this particular style of rifle is the top choice for law-abiding citizens for hunting, recreational shooting and self-defense.”

It would seem Democrats are the best gun salespeople in the World. This may explain why they are also working overtime to ban them.

So, what’s an excellent communist lawmaker to do when they see their policies having the opposite effect of their intentions? Well, double down, of course, because reversing course on policies makes too much logical sense. So while the Democrat-led Congress increases the incentive of MSR production to over 24 million, Joe Biden demands another so-called “assault weapons” ban with the new Democrat-driven H.R.1808. In an attempt to remove from the hands of Americans the very rifles they encouraged the production of through their failed policies, the political left is attempting to take another bite at the rotten apple of gun control. Never mind the fact that the first so-called “assault weapons” ban in 1994 did nothing to stop or even slow violence in America. That’s why it sun-setted 10 years later. The proposed list of firearms to be banned is extensive. See the full list here.

In a sane world, banning something you are simultaneously causing increased production of would be laughable. So, you have to ask yourself, does the left enjoy wasting time and money on Constitution-violating laws or are they just incapable of seeing the World the way real Americans see it.

Left-wing policies are conducive to gun sales because they instill fear in one form or another. Often fear of personal safety due to the lack of physical ownership of guns and fear of the reduced ability to purchase firearms in the future due to restrictive gun policies are the driving force behind sales and production increases.

So, while Democrats work very hard to create policies that ultimately increase rifle production sales, they must work twice as hard to push policies that reduce the number of rifles in America. They need to push the anti-gun fear campaign to keep their anti-gunners on board, and they need to push gun control to prevent their political opposition from having the empowerment the 2nd Amendment affords. Like most things they do, this too seems very ineffective and counterproductive to their agenda. That’s what happens when unconstitutional policies are the driving force of your ideology.

Would AR-15 style rifles be as popular today as they are if not for the gun grabbers’ incessant attempts at banning them? The irony here is the more Democrats push for gun restrictions that affect MSRs, the more MSRs show up in the hands of American citizens, forcing manufacturers to produce them at an increased rate year over year just to keep up pace with the demand. A couple of things are true. Democrats are saving firearm manufacturers a boatload of marketing and advertising cash, and they’re getting an overwhelmingly negative response to their policies by real Americans.

I’ll be the first to admit, that I bought my First AR precisely because of the push for a ban during the Obummer years. I actually bought my magazines before I bought the rifle because then Governor Lickshispooper (now Sen. Hickenlooper)pushed for a 15 round Cap Restriction. Now I own more than one AR, I’ve enjoyed building the platform. I’m pretty sure I’m not atypical, but if I’m correct, there’s a heck of a lot more than 24 million out there. Without Civilian Compliance, there’s no way they can round the 24 million ARs up, and there will be massive… Read more »

When I retired from the Big Green machine, I swore that I’d never clean another one. However … I bought one for exactly the same reason.

The proposed law is unconstitutional. Not simply for its potential outcome, but for its foundational intent, (as expressed by Jerry Nadler) to remove particular firearms from common use. That intent is not an authority granted to congress. A short recap of recent treasonous cultural behaviors: Wannabe hippies left over from the Carter inadequacy, were inherited by the “W” Bush administration, who then had to contend with State Dept. employees, who used purposeful incompetence to slow or embarrass a president, to which they disapproved. Not a very big deal for someone who was fundamentally in agreement with the Marxocrat long term… Read more »

As I understand the current statutes, ALL “assault weapons” are ALREADY banned. Knives, bricks, firearms, fists, etc. cannot be used to assault innocent people. Assault Rifles were banned in 1934, and that ban is still in effect. (Yeah, I know. You can get a permit.) And I’m tired of people saying that an AR-15 is like an AK44. These are two entirely different classes of weapons; one is a common rifle and one is machine gun that hasn’t been made in 63 years. (Yeah, 1959 was the last year the AK44 was made, and interestingly enough, the same year the… Read more »

No, not much of that is correct. The NFA of 1934 is a tax on transfer (not a ban or a permit). Permit and ban is what the federal government elites want us to thing and get used to. So they can get their way more easily.
But it is a tax, based on Congress’s taxing authority and interstate commerce power. Those two theories applied to a Constitutionally recognized Right are highly questionable, but were upheld by a corrupt and elitist S. Ct.

Knute Knute

A corrupt and elitist SC created via stacking by FDR in 1933! It’s all in the long out-of-print book: “The Real Franklin Delano Roosevelt” by Clark Kinnaird, Citadel Press, 1945.

1934 was a registration, that is why it was found to be partially unconstitutional and would have been likely fully tossed but government did quick rewrite in 1968

It was enforced for 10 years. Enforcers did obey orders.

Similar laws are being enforced in certain states today. Enforcers do obey orders.

“They” don’t have to go door to door. They will just enforce the law against the people they don’t like and the people on the list they are given. That will intimidate the rest.

There are enforcers/retired enforcers who post on this site who would absolutely enforce this law against people they don’t like. They would do it with enthusiasm.

“They” = state police agency employees, sheriff department employees, and city/town police department employees.

Congress can shove their bill where the sun don’t shine. A dozen cases over 200 years firmly state that Congress cannot ban arms in common use, and that they are protected by the 2nd.

Stop using the term assault weapon it is as bad as gun violence both are ideologies that work against gun owners. A rifle is a rifle bolt action or semi auto still a rifle. A combat weapon is fully automatic and not sold to the general public.

There in is their lie !!!!!!

That is what the “” were for.

Also stop calling them MSR’s. Sporting isn’t what is protected by the 2nd. I don’t care if they call them weapons of war. Every weapon can and will be used in war. Weapons of war are protected by the 2nd, per Miller. We should all be “sporting” M-4’s and SAW’s…

Just so we are clear: there is nothing extra scary or inherently more dangerous about “fully automatic” weapons. I would not have felt under armed in Iraq had my carbine been semi auto; and we are working hard, fighting hard, to return selective firing weapons to the general public.

What is a “semi-automatic assault weapon”?

JSNMGC

Look in the bill.

Do they define the term?

JSNMGC

Of course. Dan Wos provided a link in his article.

Wild Bill

The definition is so long that I could not paste it here. They are definitely after semiautomatic firearms, and many brands by name, but do not define the assault part. That leaves a tiny “void for vagueness” challenge, even if it becomes law.

The very threat of this will cause prices to go up.

If one traumatizes the head of another with a hammer which has a “black grip”, good balance and which a proficient user can cause to inflict rapid, repeated, strikes – does that style hammer become an “assault hammer” ?

Well, Congress seems to have changed the definition of assault rifle (a term that I never liked) to include a lot of guns that were not previously included in the definition. I’m not sure that gun owners agree.
Sooo … I guess … democrats and rinos might think so. And I’m not sure that carpenters would agree.

GomeznSA

Wild – just a reminder that “assault rifle” has a legal and military definition, ‘assault weapon’ (an ambiguous term invented by Art Agnos) does not, which allows the gun banners to classify any gun they don’t like as one. The lame stream media loves to use the two terms interchangeably – which is specifically why josh sugarmann ‘popularized’ the use of ‘assault weapon’ – to confuse folks who are not knowledgeable about guns.

FredP

With over 2 million MSRs being sold in the last year, I think the estimate of 24 million is low by more than half. Threaded barrel? Suppressors would be useless. Magazine over 5 rounds? I think an estimate of 50 million would be closer.

DunRanull

Agreed- I was thinking the same thing…

Oldman

Same here.

Finnky

From parts of the definition I’ve seen, I think you are way too low. They basically include any semiauto capable of accepting a magazine over 10 rounds. In other words pretty much everything but a few pocket pistols, revolvers, pump or break action shotguns, and an assortment of bolt, lever or break action rifles. I’m thinking closer to 400M.

GomeznSA

Finn – don’t forget that many (most?) lever action rifles and some shotguns hold more than ten rounds. Those would likely be next on the chopping block. Even muzzle loaders will eventually be on their list even though that is all they claim us mere mortals are ‘allowed’ by the Constitution.

Hey now, I support common sense gun control reform. However I oppose common nonsense gun control as we typically see proposed.

Knute Knute: Does AL have any clue how dumb “Awaiting for moderation” reads? I just had a post stuck an hour ago, no reason I can figure. Putting “gun free” in quotes? Hyphenated adjectives? It’s short, my 2nd post today, and I’m low volume compared to many. See 2nd PP.

So: I replied again, with only 2 words, then edited to add the rest. Once your post gets through, you’re home free to add to it, including links.

That is a great tip! Just get your foot in the door, so to speak!

Knute Knute

It must a be good tip, because notice how hard the trolls are trying to keep it a secret! I got rid of one of them anyway… 🙂

Exactamundo.

Thanks, but OpeTEXBruceWillFordWill et ilk is breaking out more of his socks to counteract it.

It would appear, by the numerous downvotes, that the AIs doing the voting are unhappy with my description of them! 🙂

Ope

Knute,fixed as many as I could.

Knute Knute

Thx Ope. But it doesn’t matter. These votes aren’t real, much like the votes in the last election. They’re either bought and paid for, or AI in nature. In neither case do they matter. Not so long as we call attention to their fictional nature, they don’t. Only if they find someone foolish enough to think that unlimited AI votes actually represent something real, would they matter. The votes on this page are a good example of that. What the hell are they all voting down? Any attempt to learn what words are forbidden? Calling attention to the fact that… Read more »

How are things going in Montana?

Knute Knute

Hot and sticky! It’s often really hot here in July, but usually its a dry heat, like in Arizona. But now its been heating up big thunderheads most every afternoon, and the next day’s heat makes it feel like Florida! The cows are taking it well, tho. They just go stand in the reservoir. Cows never cease amazing me with how resilient they are. From 40 below zero to 110 above, they just keep on chewing and creating leather and steaks. They are amazing creatures. Its almost like they were created for the sole purpose of being useful to human… Read more »

Knute,in TEXAS it’s the humidity that really gets to you. When I lived in Billings it was that dry heat as you speak. Totally different !

People here are selling their cattle as fast as possible. Hay will be in short supply.

“Ope” is the one doing it. Lurking-stalking 24-7, >= 8 fake identities like TEX, I suspect probly more like 20, even a few he sometimes kabuki-fights with for attn. Can’t DV us all or it pisses everyone off. So, focus on a few, like myself & JSNMCG, punish to a lesser extent those who are civil with or agree us. But, currently sucking up to you: his occasional divide & conquer M.O.

In re what seem to be personality-literacy-vileness fluctuations, someone pointed out multiple people may take turns running his sock posse, like an agency, thus the 24-7 instant DVs/UVs

No, down votes for Russn is because of him belittling almost everyone on here and his smart, a double s, arrogance succeeds him.

Not even close to most, let alone “almost everyone”. Can’t stop lying, can you? “Belittling” translation: Defending myself from a posse of sock-shills run by TEX, and exposing your hero Workman’s betrayal of the reformers in 1997 – which put the “Winning Team” grifters in charge to bankrupt & very likely END the NRA, by which his SAF-related groups have benefited enormously. So you shoot the messenger. Instead of trolling & whining, ask Dave why he never apologized. I’m happy to forgive, but he won’t even admit it was a mistake.

BS. Your sock posse is the main culprit, TEX. How many fake accounts do you have now? I know of at least 8.

Arizona

Nadler was asked during the markup of the bill “would anyone on the other side dispute that this bill would ban weapons that are in common use in the United States today?” “Yeah, that’s the point of the bill,” the troll replied. He admitted he wants an UNCONSTITUTIONAL BAN. “So to clarify Mr Chairman, you’re saying it is the point of the bill to ban weapons that are in common use in the United States today?” asked Dan Bishop. “Yes, the problem is that they are in common use” Nadler stated. Boom!  Heller could not have been more clear, that… Read more »

Democrats continue show their arrogant stupidity, This is not ignorance just plain old stupidity.

twisting numbers can be used to change a metric, 1918 flu killed 10.2% of the then world population covid is under 1% death rate of a population more than 7 times the size ,but if you take raw numbers covid “looks” as bad if covid was as bad 1 billion would have been dead by Christmas 2019 with secondary diseases following from rotting corpses the time frame of spanish flu was 26 weeks when there was no air travel ships took 15 days to cross atlantic flu killed in hours

That was the epidemic that got my would-be Maternal Grandmother! She died from the Spanish Flu right after arriving here with my Maternal Grandfather from Norway (that’s how I come to be “Knute”. It’s Norwegian for “Ken”). Anyway, having 4 children to take care of, he got remarried right away. To my Mother’s Mother. She was the first of his children born in this country, but as 1 of 12, not the last! 🙂 So I’m only second generation. Both of my maternal grandparents were born in Norway, and spoke only Norwegian until they learned English later. They switched to… Read more »
